The approach lights on the runway at Lagos' Murtala Muhammed International Airport have gone out, requiring pilots to rely exclusively on onboard technology to land.
An approach lighting system is a lighting system that extends outward from the runway end of an airport runway and consists of a series of light bars, strobe lights, or a mix of the two. It's a lighting system that helps the pilot and the aircraft land safely.
According to reliable airport sources, the approach lights failed on Monday evening, forcing pilots to rely only on their onboard equipment to land planes.
Pilots were only informed on Tuesday around 10:30pm. It is not known when the lights will be fixed.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
